During his show on 6 Music yesterday, legendary DJ and producer Mark Ronson pressed play on this extremely rare demo version of the late Amy Winehouse's smash hit "Back To Black". It's relatively similar to the massively acclaimed studio version (produced by Ronson), which appeared on her sophomore album of the same name, but Amy's voice is far more raw, and the mix is far less clean, but it almost doesn't matter. The true art on display here is the songwriting, which still maintains that magic to this day. R.I.P.

Always had time for Daniel Merriweather and his music, but Mark Ronson has gone off the boil massively in the past few years. This sees them team up for 1 of 4 tracks that they have cooked up for Russell Brand’s new film, Arthur. Cool track, which is better than anything off Ronson’s latest LP.
Latest track off Mark Ronson’s upcoming album, Record Collection, which features the legendary Ghostface Killah. Prefer this to the single and the D’Angelo joint I’ve heard. Looking forward to hearing the album on September 27th.
First up; my favourite of the 4 remixes. Riva Starr adds his unique style to my favourite track off the album and Plan B’s new single, ‘Prayin’. Brilliant Remix for Summer.
Secondly is a brand new remix of Mark Ronson & The Business Intl’s ‘Bang Bang Bang’ from the deadly duo, The Count & Sinden.
Next is a remix of Pro Green’s new single, ‘Just Be Good To Green’, from Dubstep legend, Joker. Definitely my favourite from the EP.
Finally; a remix from a few weeks ago. Afrojack absolutely smashing Rihanna’s massive 2010 hit, Rude Boy, to pieces.
One of the best videos of 2010. Ronson went all out with this one.
Q-Tip is too cool.
